When Practice is Preaching

Watertown (Mass.) Tribune-Enterprise

The very best sermon that any one of us can preach, is to practise in our daily walks before men the virtues which we declare should animate all men. In these days proofs are demanded instead of profession, and the only man that succeeds is the one who can demonstrate the views he presents to others.

Of what benefit to the world is it for one to join Don't Worry clubs, to talk cheerfulness and to preach the gospel of the denial of the power of discouragement to pull one down, if, at the same time, the one who does these things shows plainly that he is still worrying, wears a look on his face that chills and practically denies that there is any cheerfulness, and talks about the things he has to combat, "his luck," etc.?
